I'm currently trying to talk my dad through removing JAVA from his machines registery. Not the easiest task, as you can probably imagine.
While doing this, it led me to think about my word "communication" for my visual literacy class. Even when using the simplest terms I could think of I might as well have been speaking Chinese.
A similar event occurred when my brother (a joiner and carpenter) tried to intruct me in laying flooring, even though I understood every word he said I could not understand a thing he was trying to say.
Even when comminicating perfectly in English, we are completely obfuscating the issue!
